1. Root canal
The pulp of a tooth is vital to keep the tooth healthy and alive. However, when the pulp is infected or damaged, this can pose a danger to the tooth as well as one’s general oral health.

In a case such as this, a root canal may be necessary to remove the part of the pulp that is infected. Thus, this can ensure optimal health and nourishment for your at-risk tooth or teeth.

2. Medication
Some infections may be resolved with a round of antibiotics.

To deal with the pain from the oral infection or tooth-related problem, individuals can take prescribed or over-the-counter pain relievers. Although, please note that pain relievers do not assist with the actual issue at hand, except maybe temporarily with reducing slight swelling.

3. Early periodontal disease treatment
Gum problems can lead to tooth loss. Those with early or developing gum disease can seek treatment for their condition to reverse it before permanent, non-curable periodontal disease sets it.
